In 1999 the Service contracted with Dr. A. K. Fedosenko of the Department of Conservation and Rational Use of Game Resources of the Russian Federation to conduct a survey of the argali (Ovis ammon polii) population in the eastern portion of the Republic of Tajikistan. This survey is part of the continuing review of the status of populations of argali (Ovis ammon) listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act and effected by the Special Rule at 50 CFR 17.40(j). The present report is a continuation of the 1994 status review of the threatened argali populations completed for the Service by Dr. Anna Lushchekina and Dr. Fedosenko and presents the results of the 1999 survey in the same context as the previous data for the area.Start Signature
